~Scripture Sentence~

“Is not my word like fire,” says the Lord,”and like a hammer that breakes a rock in pieces?”

(Jeremiah 23:29)


We pause to offer prayers and thanksgiving that we bring to our celebration of Holy Communion.

 Everliving God,

increase in us your gift of faith,

that, forsaking sin and all that hinders us,

we may run with perseverance the race that is set before us,

looking to Jesus, the pioneer and the perfecter of our faith;

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.



A Prayer for Choosing a new Rector

Bountiful God,

give to this parish a faithful pastor

who will faithfully speak your word

and minister your sacraments;

an encourager who will equip your people for ministry

and enable us to fulfil our calling.

Give to those who will choose, wisdom,

discernment and patience,

and to us give warm and generous hearts,

for Jesus Christ’s sake.
